Quarter-Turn Sliding Locks for Quick Changeover

Sept. 21, 2021
Imao-Fixtureworks offers a complete lineup of quarter-turn sliding locks for quick change applications—without the use of tools.

Designed for use in sliding applications, quarter-turn sliding locks enable quick-change applications, all without the use of tools. The locks allow the user to slide the stop, component or plate into position, and then lock with a quarter-turn of the knob.


The QCSL type is designed for use in a slotted hole in a plate, which allows the plate to pass below before it is locked in position. The QCSQ type is designed for use with a square bar, allowing the bar to pass through the clamp body and being locked in position once the adjustment is made. Similarly, quarter-turn spindle locks clamp a shaft and lock it in place to prevent rotation or sliding.


Each lock features ON/OFF markings for clear visibility of the locked state along with an audible 'click' when in the locked position. The slide locks are ideal for applications where there is frequent disassembly or changeover, including packaging, food processing, bottling, printing and assembly equipment, and inspection fixtures.
